Snowmaking Continues

As of 2:30pm today, Sunday, December 10, 2017, Wisp's Mountain Ops Team has pumped 34 million gallons of water through the system.  That's enough water to fill 56 Olympic size swimming pools.  Speaking of the Olympics, Wisp Resort is featuring two Gold Medal Weekends, February 9 - 10 and 23 - 25, 2018.  Cheer on your favorite USA Teams and winter athletes for the opening and closing weekends of the 2018 Winter Games.  There will be lots of games, on- and off-snow events, competitions, torch light parades, giveaways and lots of Gold Medals!

Happy Birthday Wisp!

Wisp Resort opened today in the winter of 1954.1955 making this the 63rd winter of operations in the state of Maryland.  Even Google wished us Happy Birthday -- We wish for more cold and more snow this winter!

Humming Along

Wwoooo-weeeee, the Mountain Ops Team has been cranking out the snow for over 40 hours as of noon today, Friday, December 8 and the mountain looks B-U-tiful!  The wonderful humming sound of the snow guns can be heard all around the resort.  We are currently pumping 8,500 gallons per minute through the system -- that's PER MINUTE!  Since we started the snowmaking system up at approximately 10:00pm Wednesday, December 6, we have pumped 9 million gallons of water thus far.  And lots more to go...

Check the Mountain Report to find out exactly what trails we are making snow on.

Tentative Opening Day >> Saturday, December 16, 2018, weather permitting.

Check our live and static web cams to see all the action.

Update:  December 8, 7:42pm

Hard-core snowmaking continues around the mountain and the piles are getting larger by the hour.  Mountains Ops has reported that a total of 18 million gallons of water has been pumped since firing up this round.  Keep up the awesome efforts guys (sorry, no ladies on the team)!

Take a look at these images from this evening - there's just something so serene and calming about the white-noise of snow guns at night and watching the snow fall to the ground.

Snowmaking Resumes

Wisp's Mountain Ops Team is preparing to turn on the snowmkaing system.  Temperatures are steadily dropping and as soon as conditions are right, we're firing up!

Stay tuned for full report.

Update:  December 6, 10:38 pm

Snowmaking is underway!  Our Mountain Ops Team will be cranking out as much snow as possible for as long as possible.  Looking like we have a pretty large window to make things happen for an opening on Saturday, December 16, weather permitting.
